Purchasing Department

The Purchasing Department provides efficient service to departments in the procurement of goods and services that are of best quality and value from qualified suppliers. The Purchasing Department handles all aspects of the procurement process, including identifying and developing sources; assisting departments in soliciting bids, quotations and proposals; negotiating contracts; and interacting with suppliers.

In response to President Pescovitz announcement dated March 11, 2020, regarding COVID-19, all campus operations will continue at this time and campus will remain open, in the case University staff, requisitioners and approvers need to work from home, the Purchasing Department will accept email approvals for Requisitions submitted. Please see the Requisition tab for more information. 

If you are having difficulty connecting to the ODBC, please contact Paula at preyes@oakland.edu to print the REQ form to route for approval.
